Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer
LP-2844-Z... Installed 2 days ago for postage label printing. Worked
fine until I moved it to another location on my desk (disconnected cables for move), during which the
5A -250V fuse in the power supply blew. Replaced fuse yesterday, powers up fine
- but now, it won't print anything at all. Green light is on, and
pressing the button advances labels fine. All connections are solid
(connected via USB-A to Centronics Parallel Printer cable) and drivers
have been deleted & reinstalled. Troubleshooter has been
unsuccessfully run three times.
I'd really appreciate any help here. Thanks, and God bless you.
Sounds like you may have taken out more than the fuse. In case there is still life the next thing to try is a printer reset
1) Turn printer off.
2) Hold down feed button whilst turning printer on.
3) Let go of the feed button as soon as it starts to flash and then wait.
4) Printer will measure out 4 labels then print out a Hex dump ending with a not to "Push Feed to Exit"
5) Push feed
Follow the above instructions, if you mess around tapping the feed button (not following the above) you can change the printer between line mode and page mode. To swap that back is another storey.
